Later,  Banda arrived at the house from Kalimanjira Trading Centre where he went to visit his maize mill and the  thugs forced the deceased’s son and his friend into a bedroom and tied them with a rope after threatening the two with a small gun.

“The thugs then dragged Banda into his bedroom where he was making unusual noise,” said Kaponda.

The killers had run away.
